    Ok, I don't know if this will work or not. Can someone please verify? I found it on Yahoo groups (exim-users).

    The idea here is to deny sending the message if 2 addresses of the intended recipients fail. If this happens, it's very likely a spammer with an out-dated list.

    deny message = Max 2 failed recipients allowed
    condition = ${if >{$rcpt_fail_count}{1} {1}}
    delay = ${eval: ($rcpt_fail_count) * 30}s
    log_message = $rcpt_fail_count failed recipient attempts


    Here's another one:

    Deny sending messages to more than 20 recipients (or whatever number you choose). This could be useful. Again, verification would be appreciated.

    deny message = I don't take more than 20 RCPTs
    condition = ${if > {$rcpt_count}{20}{yes}{no}}


    I'm very interested in hearing some feedback on this. Thanks!
